Private Health Care Might Kill You

This story is absolutely sickening - a man named Tracy Pierce died because his health insurance company refused to pay for treatment.
Despite being fully insured, every treatment his doctors sought for him was denied by his insurance provider. First-Health Coventry deemed the treatments were either not a medical necessity or experimental.

"I don't know what else to do but just wait," Tracy Pierce said last May.

As he waited, his doctors appealed again and again, including a 27-page appeal spelling out that Tracy Pierce would die without care. Coventry dismissed each request.
This same company, First-Health Coventry, finds bogus reasons to deny treatment to children with cancer.

Yes, you read that correctly. First-Health Coventry makes money by letting children die of cancer, when there are treatments available which could save their lives.

If you work for First-Health Coventry, you need to think about how you are spending your life. If you own stock in First-Health Coventry, you should be ashamed of yourself. If you are insured by First-Health Coventry, your life is in danger.
